Publisher's Summary

The much-anticipated sequel to Zero G and the middle grade debut by Dan Wells.

The colonists from the Pathfinder have arrived on Kaguya, a planet with low gravity but a very dense atmosphere. It’s fun to jump around, but the air makes you loopy. Even worse than that, the heavy atmosphere means that wind storms, although rare, are absolutely devastating.

Zero and Nyx help to get everything locked down before the first big storm, but they stumble onto a group of thieves who have stolen some mining equipment. Before the kids have a chance to get away and tell anyone, the storm hits and the massive winds carry them far away. Zero and Nyx are stranded on an unknown planet with no way to communicate, being chased by thieves, and with another storm bearing down on them.

And, oh yeah, this planet has dragons.

It will take more than just good luck to get back to the colony. It’s going to take science.

Great book!

This was a great story. My 10 year old loves the first book in the series & immediately after Zero G asked if there was a sequel. It’s a great listen for the whole family. He thinks this book was at least as good as the original story and “maybe even a little better.”

Fun for the whole family!

My kids loved this story, and Zero, the previous one. They want to see it made into a movie someday and are particularly looking forward to a bumblebeaver fire scene.

Another great science story

This book, like the 1st, constantly throws out little science tidbits, w/o kids knowing that’s what’s happening.

My wife & I loved it, & our 10 year old boy loved it.

Fantastic Sequel

I love a kids adventure story. This has the wonder of discovery and a clever duo to over come the bad guys once again. You gotta get book 1 "Zero G" for the set. These have become my favorite kids stories and I cant wait till my kids are old enough to get into a good book.

Are you a dragon?

So if I where a strong dragon I would stay in the 1st, 2nd & 3rd windstorm because I am excellent at gymnastics.

This book is as good as the last, possibly better!

This book is full of action, and I devoured it in no more than 2 days. You will be hooked after the first couple of chapters. It is quite interesting and full of adventure and new discoveries.

Really great kids science fiction story.

This story is written and performed in a really child accessable way. The story sneaks in some genuine science facts and ideas and keeps a message of "science is cool" throughout.
Pro STEM parents should give this a go.
It is a fun adventure with our 12 and 13 year old hero's surviving on an alien world surrounded by unusual native life. Using their knowledge of science to figure out how to survive and get home, all while escaping a group of bad guys.
I really liked it and hope I can convince my 5 year-old to listen to it as I think he will like it too.
The title is a little misleading as dragons play only a very small (but not unimportant) part in the action.

Good family book

It’s a really good performance with a good cast,can be listened by adults and or children or together. I’m listening to them alone and yes they are a bit young in age but wrote well and performed well. It’s a well wrote friendly sci-fi trilogy of books . This is the second one,I preferred the first book but looking forward to listening to the 3rd :)
